Stuffy Nose

Hi guys! I just want to talk to you today about stuffy noses – especially in our little newborns. Sometimes they come home with crusties in their nose, boogies in their nose, and that’s okay. A lot of times that’s just leftover amniotic fluid and some residual drainage in there.

You don’t want to use anything other than a bulb syringe to get that out. Just put two drops of nasal saline in each nostril and then use the bulb syringe to irrigate it gently. If you have any questions, just call our office.

If congestion is interfering with your baby’s ability to feed or breathe, call our office.
